This is the third house that we have designed for these clients. It is meant to be their new full time residence transitioning from an ocean front house to this rural wooded setting. The previous houses that we designed for them were traditional shingle style but this time they wanted a contemporary house with mono pitched roofs, casement/ picture windows without grills and natural clapboard siding. Another unique feature of the house was their desire to only have one bed room suite in the main house. The other two guest en-suites and bunk room are located in a separate structure. Separation and privacy are key elements in the design. We arranged the key functional spaces on the first floor of the main house to all have views of the pond and take advantage of natural light. The rooms are cozy and warm with areas of sloped ceiling which adds excitement to the spaces.
The Great Room features a large stone clad fireplace which becomes a central focal point in the space. The only space on the second floor of the main house is the library and supporting bath room. The Library enjoys views in multiple directions, has a gas fire place and a sloped ceiling which brings in abundant natural light throughout the day.
The guest house features a common living room with TV viewing area and bar along with the two guest en-suites on the first floor. The second floor contains a large bunk room and it's own full bath. The two structures relate to each other with similar materials, roof lines and detail.
